How do you respond when you hear from your wife, "Not tonight, honey"? Your response may range from confusion and hurt to impatience and anger. Whether you're hearing the words for the first time or are beginning to think you'll never hear any others, you struggle with how to respond. You want to be a good husband, but you also want her to be a good wife!
Rob Green walks through the various ways men respond to their wives' sexual rejection and calls husbands back to Christ's foundational call to love their wives as Christ loves the church. By reminding men that sexual intimacy is an expression of love that finds its context in a marriage built on safely and security, he offers helpful instruction on how to love well and continue to build relationship.
